Hey now yourself?
To answer your question about the Alabama closer:
They only did it from May to Oct of 1980

They only did it 8 times. But the first one IMO is really the stuff that trivia is made of:

5-7-80 Barton Hall---it was the encore for the 1st time. BUT.....
5-8-80 Glen Falls---the next day, it was the opener!
Gotta love it
I think I remember the 5-8-80 version on this sight is cut off.
You might have to go to a different source to make the comparison

So basically: ALA closers are:
& 10-7-80

Another interesting note:
Anytime ALA was played from 11-26-80 to 9-14-88 it was the opener except for only 8 times
Happy Listening!!!
